Two weeks after I arrived in Columbus twenty-five years ago, I was directed toward Mershon Auditorium for a concert given by the orchestra and chorus of the School of Music at The Ohio State University.

The Ohio State University's School of Music performance of Verdi’s Requiem on March 8, 2015 in Mershon Auditorium

Yesterday, March 8, nearly student 200 musicians from all backgrounds and religious creeds gathered on stage at a public university to offer up one glorious, united Requiem. I can think of nothing more pertinent and altogether necessary.

Ohio State University’s production of Requiem was the product of two semesters’ worth of rehearsals and preparations, and it showed. The OSU Symphony Orchestra played exceptionally well under the direction of Marshall Haddock, and the choirs were an illumination to the talent and work ethic of the choral faculty.
